These amazing Taco Crescent Rolls are quickly becoming one of our favorites. They are so kid-friendly (they fit perfectly in my two-year-old’s hand!) and make a great dish for the upcoming Cinco De Mayo festivities!

Oh, and did I mention they only have 5 ingredients? Yeah – these taco crescent rolls just keep getting better and better.

How to make Taco Crescent Rolls:

With a short ingredient list and just a few steps, these Taco Crescent Rolls come together quickly for a great family dinner.

Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees.

Next, cook the beef in a frying pan until cooked through.  Drain excess grease and add taco seasoning and cheese.  Mix well.

Pull apart crescent roll dough and lay out triangles on an ungreased baking sheet. Spoon about 3 Tablespoons of the meat mixture onto each triangle and roll into a crescent.

Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Top with more cheese and salsa, of course!

Can I substitute ingredients?

Another great thing about this recipe is how flexible it is. It’s easy to make substitutions that meet your family’s needs.

Here are a few to consider:

  • Substitute ground turkey for ground beef for a more healthy option.
  • Don’t add cheese to the meat mixture if you have dairy sensitivities. It will still taste great!
  • Consider adding some pinto or black beans to your meat mixture for some added protein.
  • Guacamole and sour cream make great toppings in addition to salsa.

Having Trouble Rolling the dough?

If you’re having trouble getting your stuffing to stay in when you roll them, try stretching the dough out slightly beforehand.  You can also decrease the amount of meat mixture you add to the rolls.

We think these Taco Crescent Rolls are so cute — and super-tasty, too! So whether you’re partying at home or hanging out with friends this Cinco De Mayo, these are sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

  1. this looks really easy and good! I just need some clarification. Where do you put the 1/4 cup of salsa? It doesn't seem to say in your instructions except for at the very end as a garnish and that said "top with MORE salsa". This seems to indicate that salsa was added somewhere else. I assume to mix the salsa into the meat mixture?

    These are delicious. I'm not used to dealing with the pastry so I had some trouble opening and working with it. Dough should be cold, just and out of the refrigerator, and If you overfill, the dough will be too thin in some spots. Mine didn't look as lovely as the picture, but they turned out and were delicious. Plan to make them again.
